Projet R&D Epsilon

As part of the France 2030 plan – Innovative solutions and technologies for batteries – SOLVIONIC’s EPSILON R&D project has just been awarded €1.4m in funding over 3 years. The aim is to develop new solid electrolyte formulations that will lead to higher-performance, more reliable batteries. This funding from BPI France follows the EPSILON project’s approval by the AXELERA chemicals cluster.

GIGAGREEN proposes a structured research plan to develop and scale up novel electrode and cell component manufacturing processes that follow a Design to Manufacture approach in line with Europe’s strategic goal of becoming a global leader in the Li-ion battery value chain.

This means that GIGAGREEN seeks for :
  • minimum environmental impact and energy consumption
  • cell designs which facilitate the re-use and disassembly
  • increase of the cost-efficiency and safety of processes and products,
  • high-throughput technologies able to be easily scaled up and automated in the context of industry 4.0/5.0 gigafactories.


Projet R&D HYDRA

Hybrid power-energy electrodes for next generation lithium-ion batteries

Personal electronic devices, electric vehicles… The lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery is a technology already used in a wide range of products. In addition to these uses, it also represents a key technology for a number of emerging markets, such as the integration of renewable energies into the national electricity grid and for the aerospace industry.

To ensure the development of these markets, new technological innovations in Li-ion batteries are required. Technological changes are needed to improve performance and reduce dependence on critical raw materials.
The Hydra project, funded by the European Union, aims to develop a new generation of Li-ion battery technology using sustainable materials, with improved capacity and energy output, while keeping production costs under control. It will result in a pilot-scale cell production line capable of producing high-energy, long-life batteries. In addition, through the investments made by the project’s industrial partners, Hydra will encourage the strategic battery market to take root in Europe.



EMPHASIS, a European research project, aims to pave the way for the design of storage systems adapted to energy production using renewable energy sources. At the heart of the project is the development of new supercapacitors capable of delivering the high power levels required for mobility, while at the same time using more environmentally-friendly materials. Solvionic, a founding member of the project, is contributing closely to the design of these systems.

While renewable energies are experiencing unprecedented growth, storage systems have not developed in the same way. This discrepancy between the growing production of renewable energies, most of which cannot be controlled, and energy needs whose peaks are outside the production optimums (e.g. photovoltaics) is holding back the ecological transition. The European EMPHASIS project aims to fill this gap by accelerating the development of supercapacitors capable of storing energy with minimal losses. What’s more, these supercapacitors could be used in the field of mobility, as a complement to batteries in order to extend their lifespan and efficiency, as well as in the field of intelligent clothing.

As a founding member, Solvionic is closely involved in this technological development.



The European GREENCAP project will develop a non-RCM (critical conduction mode) technology to produce high-performance, long-lasting supercapacitors using 2D layered materials, in particular graphene and MXenes as electrode materials, and ionic liquids as high-voltage electrolytes.
